Our Work

The Public Law Project (PLP) is a national legal charity which aims to improve access to public law remedies for those whose access to justice is restricted by poverty or some other form of disadvantage.Within this broad remit PLP has adopted three main objectives:

  • increasing the accountability of public decision-makers

  • enhancing the quality of public decision-making;  

  • improving access to justice.

Uniquely for an organisation of its kind, PLP undertakes research, policy initiatives, casework and training across the range of public law remedies.

The citizenry of this country ought to appreciate better that [judicial review in the Administrative] Court... provides a means of obtaining speedy assistance if they think they are oppressed by authority or that they are failing to receive the assistance which parliament has required authorities to afford them."
